IR spectra for over 7500 compounds, Mass spectra for over 10,000 compounds, UV/Vis spectra for over 400 compounds, Electronic and vibrational spectra for over 3000 compounds. Other data includes gas chromatography and thermodynamic data. ~ from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

SDBS is an excellent (free) site offering access to an integrated spectral database system for organic compounds. The site includes 6 different types of spectra under a directory of the compounds, namely an electron impact Mass spectrum (EI-MS), a Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FT-IR), a 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectrum, a 13C NMR spectrum, a laser Raman spectrum, and an electron spin resonance (ESR) spectrum. The SDBS Interface allows for searching spectral data by compound name, molecular formula, molecular weight, CAS Registry number and more.  Offered by the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), Japan.
